I specialize in young adult (NOT children's or middle grade), new adult, and all genres of romance. I take mysteries and women's fiction on a case by case basis (chances are good if there is a thread of romance or paranormal). If you consider your manuscript mystery or women's fiction, feel free to send me a synopsis and I can let you know if I'd feel confident editing it.
I have a B.A. in English and a M.S. in Publishing. After a year editing educational textbooks, I found my passion at Kensington Publishing, where I spent more than five years editing romance and young adult fiction. I've been freelancing for 4 years, providing a variety of editorial services for publishers (such as Grand Central and Sourcebooks) and authors. I'm also a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.
Fun Facts I own a Jane Austen action figure.
I love tea and BBC shows.
I prefer to eat only the icing in the middle of the Oreo, leaving the cookies for someone else.
Before I decided to major in English, I wanted to be an anthropologist.
